  • Nursing home to close: Healthcare leaders learned that the skilled nursing hospital in Quincy is slated for closure, which would result in the relocation of more than three dozen patients and the loss of 60 jobs.
  • Program sacked: Judge Ira Kaufman is no longer sentencing people to drug court. He said he was ending the program because clients weren’t being served.

Such packets are used in many applications, the most common being their use by individuals or groups in distress at sea to alert search and rescue parties to their location.

Found west of Meadowbrook Loop hanging from a tree along the creek, the dye packet had not completely emptied its contents when responders from Plumas County Sheriff’s Office and Chester Fire Rescue found it and took it down.
